The country’s leading Latino advocacy organizations have endorsed a first-of-its-kind public service campaign, aimed at helping families understand – and accept – their Latino sons and daughters, brothers and sisters who are gay or LGBT. Over twenty groups, including the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF), the Cuban American National Council, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI), the National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA), the Dolores Huerta Foundation and the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, are endorsing the Familia es Familia Campaign. The public service campaign was announced in a press conference this weekend at the NCLR annual conference, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
